Romanian experts and diplomats of Chinese embassy in Romania have held a forum "Cherishing the Memory of Deng Xiaoping" in Bucharest Wednesday.
The former Romanian ambassador to China Dumit Rescu said that Deng Xiaoping's theory of emancipating the mind and seeking truth from the facts made China become the great political and economic power it is today.
The country's former Prime Minister Manea Manescu also said Deng Xiaoping was a strong-willed politician.
Over 100 Romanian and Chinese diplomats attended the forum.
